Digital Backs

Better Light

Better Light makes an adapter so that their scanning backs can be mounted to the RB-67. This scans the full area (actually ~7cmx7cm). Focus as normal, lock the mirror, set the shutter to bulb, then use the scanning back as normal. Advantage–true full frame, incredible resolution. Disadvantage–~loooong exposures.

    The Mamiya RB67 Pro SD has a substantial advantage compared to many other analogue cameras with attachable digital back.

    At the digital rear Mamiya ZD Back, the IR cut-off filter YB401 can be removed and instead, e.g. a Kodak Wratten gelatin filter 87C can be attached. With this method, you only lose about one exposure level.

    The viewfinder image remains bright and clearly visible with this method.
    I have tested this setup extensively:
